As long as we're already wearing black

R.I.P. Shulamith Firestone, pioneering socialist feminist and underrated science fiction author -- for The Dialectic of Sex is undeniably science fictional. Also frighteningly on point. Her work is definitely one of the cornerstones of my own thinking. I've definitely been revisiting her insights about the labor of reproduction periodically over, oh, the past four years or so.

ETA: Aqueduct Press has a nice appreciation of her life and work.


Thanks for posting this! I always thought she was underrated and undeservedly forgotten after the early '70s (unless I was reading the wrong stuff after that, which is very possible).
